Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago
Robert A. Halvorson, Halvorson & Partners discusses the design process between Foster and Halvorson that led to the unique Moscow City Tower design at the CTBUH 2006 Chicago Conference held at the Herman Hall, Illinois Institute of Technology. The Moscow City Tower is a striking mixed-use tall building 612m in height. The building structure evolved through a collaborative process between the architect, Foster + Partners of London, and structural engineer Halvorson & Partners of Chicago. The innovative ‘braced spine’ structural system developed in this process is an efficient concept for super-tall structures and was a direct response to the design challenges and opportunities presented by the project.
